Maecenas XXXIV was a magical and mystical success at Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters!

Celebrated as an event that "definitely hit the high notes" by Fanfare, and “the most glamorous night of the year in Pittsburgh” by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh Opera’s Maecenas Gala was a party not to miss! Stay tuned for more information on Maecenas XXXV on May 18, 2019.

The Duquesne Club catered a fabulous and whimsical dinner, including deep-fried lobster on a stick, blackened Tournedos of Beef and braised short rib croquette with a mushroom demi-glace, and warm ratatouille tartelette with sofrito and roasted marble potatoes. We danced the night away to live entertainment, including a special performance by Pittsburgh Opera Resident Artists, as well as The Bachelor Boys.

Maecenas provides Pittsburgh Opera with crucial unrestricted funds that allow us to continue to produce live opera productions and educational programs which are financially accessible to all audiences while training the next generation of great American singers. World-class cities sustain premiere arts amenities, and an organization like Pittsburgh Opera contributes to Pittsburgh's ever-growing presence on the global stage.

If you have questions about ticket or sponsorship information for next year's Maecenas Gala XXXV, contact Michael Braxton, Director of Development by phone (412-281-0912 ext. 259) or email.
